Notes 04/27/22 – Alchemy

Source: Andrea Knight

Sometimes I receive some side notes concerning alchemy that aren’t always confined to one particular plant, tree, or herb. So here is a few notes I learned within the last week.

  • Tree bark – During a reading with those from the elemental and nature spirit plane it was explained to me that if someone removed the bark from a tree, a small amount, asked the tree spirits to help ground them and put it in their pocket that this would be a great way to ground. I asked if it was ok to take tree bark from a living tree and I was assured that it was alright.
  • Another note from this reading is that you can use multiple flowers in a healing or manifesting ritual, it doesn’t have to be only one. Different combos can mean different things. Flowers so far have had a connection with love, sex and reproduction in many cases, but may help in other areas as well. Since flowers are part of the reproductive cycle of the plant it makes some sense here. You can define how you want it to help you in whatever ritual you have planned.
  • To dry flowers to use in alchemy or or rituals tie them up at the stems and hang them upside down in a dry place. It may take a couple days to weeks depending on how dry the environment is.
  • I used carnations that I had received from a bouquet in a healing ritual, and found that aside from helping me with the healing I saw extremely vivid clairvoyant images of the elemental or nature spirit planes after it’s use. It was very cool, and felt safe. I used the dried carnation in water with a sprinkle of cinnamon for healing. When I googled white carnation I received other than helping with love that it was used for purity, metaphysical and spiritual energy.

Belbowrie – Alchemy

Belbowrie

Melaleuca quinquenervia

Specimen sighted: San Diego, CA

Metaphysical attributes:*

Bark: I see guides recommending to crush the bark any which way you desire (hands, mortar and pestle, rocks, etc) and sprinkle on any area for your desired effect such as candles, altars, or the ground. Candles is suggested less so than other methods. The Belbowrie bark can be used for any manifestation, they say it is more about your intentions. So it can be used for romance, love, money (best), career etc. Crush and sprinkle on the ground to ask for more rain (helps to pair with a dance).

Leaves: Leaves can be crushed and sprinkled over candles for an additional boost effect for your desires. With candles they recommend only for love and romance, not recommended for money. The bark or leaves that are crushed being sprinkled on the ground is better for money. Crush and sprinkle on the ground to ask for more rain (helps to do a dance).

Fruit/Nut/Cone: The seeds are not to be used for manifestation or magical purposes.

Flower: Guides explain that a child may blow on the flower to send its pieces into the air for a wish but not very effective for “grown up wishes”.

Elementals & Nature Spirits associated: Many, sprites, fairies, unicorns, animal kingdom elementals associated with piglets, mushrooms, grounding elementals, I see a rainbow here, there are more…

Candle manifesting: Yes, see bark up above, although not the best method. If crushed leaves are used then only for love and romance. (there is a little bit of sensitivity to the tree being “burned”, so be careful here, use your metaphysical senses to see if this is the right method for you at the time and by the tree spirits).

Healing abilities:*

  • Poultice: Not recommended
  • Powder: Yes, the resulting powder can be used to sprinkle on the earth for blessings or manifestations, to call the rain (sprinkle on the ground), in candles or altars. Anywhere, whether it is the bark or leaves (see above sections).
  • Tincture: Mixed answer here, any part of the tree can be used, however consult with a physician before using in anything consumable.
  • Tea: Yes, the flower, however consult with a physician before trying to consume any part of a plant.
  • Salve: Not recommended.

Mint – Alchemy

Mint

Mentha X suavis

Specimen sighted: San Diego, CA (house plant)

Metaphysical attributes:*

Bark: N/A

Leaves: Mint is recommended for areas that include abundance, health, spiritual energy, enthusiasm, and clearing energy (less foggyness and mental clarity). The leaves can be crushed or can be used whole. Candle manifesting is good as well as other rituals (I see a spread here with twigs and other manifesting tools on a rock).

One method involved taking a single mint leaf, washing it off, visualizing your desires with it in your hand, putting a single drop of water on it, then with the mint leaf above your head you tip the leaf so the water drops down into your mouth. End with please and thank you, amen.

The second ritual involved taking several leaves (washed and dried so can be lit), state your intention in your mind or out loud, with a visualization if possible, and roll them up. With them in your hand, light them, take them to your mouth. Blow through the tube and allow the rolled leaves to smoke. Do not inhale. Blow at least 3 times but more is OK, just not less than 3. Once it starts to burn put it down on a ceramic or fire safe dish to smoke. Recommended to do outside in a fire safe place. Allow the smoke and ash to blow away with the wind. Say please and thank you, amen as it smokes and blows away.

Guides indicate there are many ways to incorporate the leaves into rituals, you are not restricted to these few. Go with your intuition and clairvoyance.

Candle manifesting will be reviewed below.

Fruit/Nut/Cone: N/A

Flower: The flower of the mint plant can be used for manifesting and rituals. One method was to roll it on a surface to loosen the flower parts and then bring it to your mouth and blow for the flower to release the flower parts into the air. Different from many rituals on here, you would wait until after you’ve blown on the flower and its parts are airborne before visualizing. After you are done with visualizing end with please and thank you.

Another method with the flower is to add a mint flower, just one, to a wine barrel with wine in it to bless the wine. Before you drop it in hold it in your hand, visualize and state your desire for anyone who drinks the wine, and end with please and thank you. Drop the flower in and cork your wine barrel. I think very few of us will be able to take advantage of this one unless you own a vineyard, but very interesting to see indeed. Apparently not the same if done with a bottle, I was specifically shown a barrel.

Elementals & Nature Spirits associated: air spirits (sylphs), romantic nymphs, elves, sprites, mushroom spirits 🍄, some gnomes

Candle manifesting: Both the leaves and the flowers can be used in your candle manifesting. The areas discussed in the leaves topic are recommended areas.

Healing abilities:*

  • Poultice: May be used for manifesting rituals of many kinds, as well as some healing poultices for breathing, sinuses, and spiritual energy cleansing for mental clarity*
  • Powder: Not recommended
  • Tincture: Yes, has some healing properties spiritually*
  • Tea: Can be used in teas but guides say no metaphysical effects, I concur, I haven’t noticed any either
  • Salve: Yes may be used for physical and metaphysical healing*
